Preview Hot Toys Iron Man 3: 1/4th scale Iron Patriot Collectible Bust - War Machine upgraded

The upcoming Iron Man 3 movie will present a brand-new character Iron Patriot which is well fortified of military strength and technological superiority by transforming of War Machine Armor. Hot Toys is proud to present the 1/4th scale Iron Patriot Limited Edition Collectible Bust, which is specially produced based on the image of the Iron Patriot character in the movie in fine sculpture, highlighting the light-up functions and rotatable shoulder weapon.

Let us take a look, shall we? Busts have never been my thing because I want to see the rest of the figure, not just the top half. Busts always look incomplete because not everything is there - arms missing, torso missing, legs missing, hands and feet missing - my, that's a lot of missing parts ;p Scroll down to see the rest of the pictures. At least we know how Hot Toys will tackle the 1/6 scale version of Iron Patriot from the Iron Man 3 movie. After all, the top half should look identical in terms of the details.

In Iron Man 3, Don Cheadle returns as Col. James "Rhodey" Rhodes, Stark's best friend, the liaison between Stark Industries and the U.S. Air Force in the department of acquisitions and the operator of the War Machine armor.

Rhodes' armor is redesigned / upgraded and will take on an American flag-inspired color scheme in the film, similar to the Iron Patriot armor from the comics.

Kevin Feige said of Rhodes and the armor, "The notion in the movie is that a red, white and blue suit is a bold statement, and it’s meant to be. With Rhodey, he’s very much the foil to Tony’s eccentricities, and in this one you get to see this and be reminded of the trust and friendship between them in that great Shane Black buddy-cop fashion."

Though I am not crazy about them, I have few busts myself, and this one is so cool.
